Sunsberry Pepper/1850 Gwinnett Co., GA

  of 328

Just recently found out that I am part Pepper(s) thanks to the great sleuthing work and records sent to me by Judy Bowman who has several messages posted to this list. I am descended from John Pepper(s) and Ester/Hester Whaley Peppers through their daughter Elizabeth, who married Nathan Fowler sometime in the early 1820s, probably in Jackson, Walton or Gwinnett County. I would appreciate any further information on ancestors of John Pepper(s). Thanks to Judy, I have the Whaley background on John's wife, Esther/Hester Whaley. (Of course we can always use more information.) I also will be happy to share anything I have on Nathan and Elizabeth Pepper(s) Fowler's descendants.

Also, I was going through the 1850 Gwinnett County, GA, census last Friday and came across the Sunsberry Pepper listing and a rather odd one on their neighbors, the "Vicarys." Thought I'd pass it on in case it might help someone else.

Census taken Oct. 9, 1850
Sunsberry PEPPER, age 50, m. Farmer, $700, b. GA
Phebee PEPPER, age 50, f. b. GA
(Those are the last two entries on the page. when you scroll down to the next page, it becomes...
BEN SMITH'S DISTRICT--?? Go figure--and the family continues)
Mary PEPPER, 17, F., B. GA
John PEPPER, 16, m., farmer, b. GA
Green PEPPER, 15, m., b. GA (the Peppers must have had a sense of humor)
James PEPPER, 13, m., b. GA
Amanda PEPPER, 6, f., b. GA
Robert PEPPER, 1, m., b. GA

Sanford PEPPER, 21, m., Farmer. b. GA
Lucinda PEPPER, 19, f., b. GA

#1128 Thomas PERRY, 48, M. b. VA (I have the entire family)
#1129 William PERRY, 22, m. b. GA
#1130 William BAKER, 40
#1131 Samuel DILLARD 32
#1132 Moses DILLARD, 28
and here's the odd one:

Thomas R. VICARY, 54, m., Blacksmith, $100, b. SC
Juliet VICARY, 54, f., b. SC
Margaret VICARY, 26, f., b. SC
Anne VICARY, 24, f., b. SC
Levy(?) Welborn (?) 4, m., b. GA
Lucinda VICARY, 3, f., b. GA
Almeda VICARY, 3, f., b. GA
Sunsberry PEPPER, 2, m., b. GA
Jemima PEPPER, 5 mos., f, b. GA

Rounding out the neighborhood are #1134, Benjamin F. FULLER, and #1135, Lalitia BRADFORD.

Thought these surnames and info might help someone put their Gwinnett Co. Peppers together.
